Mid-week rumblings. …
— For my story for Wednesday’s paper I wrote about Devin Aguilar, who out of high school faced the decision of whether to play football or basketball, and chose football because it’s the one where he thought he had the best future. It’s looking like a good call after the past few games where he’s been as dynamic a WR as the Huskies have had in years. His 154 yards Saturday are the 29th most in school history and the fourth-highest total this decade not turned in by Reggie Williams Charles Frederick, Craig Chambers and Marcel Reece each had one game with a higher total than Aguilar’s. And as noted in the story, Aguilar said he’s probably not walking on to the hoops team during his time at UW, saying he thought about it last year but decided he had to concentrate on what he was here for — which was playing football.
Bud Withers writes about the tough task of rebuilding a college football program.
— ESPN’s Ted Miller offers this mid-season review of the Huskies. He names Jake Locker and Donald Butler the MVPs (though I think a good case could also be made for Mason Foster on defense).
Nick Daschel still thinks the Huskies are going bowling.
— The line is now up to Oregon by 10 after starting at 5.5. Those have been ominous trends for UW this year — both the Stanford and ASU lines moved quickly in the direction of those two teams, ane each ended up covering (admitting the ASU game was kind of a special circumstance but the result is what it is).
— The Oregonian says Saturday’s game is shaping up as a Locker-Jeremiah Masoli battle after all. And while I understand if some UW fans would rather see someone other than Masoli, from a pure football standpoint it will be fun to see what are generally considered to be the two best QBs in the Pac-10 go at it.
— The Eugene Register-Guard looks at how Oregon’s running game has improved since the Boise State debacle.
All for now.
